It is well-known that Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema had shared a close bond with Zindzi's late mother.
After the situation had gone viral, Mandela had clapped back over her right to freedom:
"I don't flirt with EFF South Africa, I have deep, pure unconditional love and respect for Julius Malema and that won't stop. Mandela Legacy? Are you talking about both my parents who loved and respected CIC?"
